Owner's perspective - "South Barn has been our absolute perfect family home, it has solid character combined with charm and appeal and has a very warm and inviting ambience.
The stunning views overlooking Carsington Water enhance the quirkiness of the upside down accommodation and is an absolute luxury to wake up to every day. It is nestled in the most peaceful and tranquil location being only 10 minutes from Ashbourne and there are many countryside walks that can be enjoyed right from the doorstep with 2 village pubs within walking distance.
We have a large following of birds at the Barn including blue tits and ducks (that stand on parade most days for a feed !) and in the summer it is the most perfect place to sit out on the patio with a glass of Pimms admiring the stunning countryside views.
The southerly facing garden comprises of a wildflower area -which in the summer is a haven for butterflies and bees, a small fish pond and BBQ area , where we have enjoyed many family gatherings. We have loved living at South Barn very much and truly hope that this will continue for the future owners.”
